RPM Package Installation
I am using Redhat 7 and trying to install the Samba RPM package from the CD. Everytime I click the Samba package file I get a dialogue box which asks Open WIth. What do I type in to open the application with? Thanks.

either, probably, gnoRPM or kpackagemanager.
or open term and do it the regular way

I prefer to use the command line when installing RPMs.

rpm -ivh packagename.rpm

Otherwise, I would recommend using kpackage if you must use a GUI.

pardon my ignorance but where do i get kpackage from?

If you installed KDE, it's included with that. It's actually bundled with the kdeadmin rpm.
